"Marnie Rappell puts the artist in Make Up Artist. I have worked with Marnie on film shoots, photo shoots and live performance and have always found her to be professional, highly skilled and personable. She works flawlessly across various makeup styles and continues to create looks that surpass my expectations in both presentation and wear. I can’t recommend Marnie highly enough."
- Lila Luxx, Miss Perfect Pinup Australia 2012 & Director of The Bombshell Burlesque and Beauty Academy

"I am a Producer/Director, and have worked with Marnie for over 5 years on various projects. Marnie is an exceptional make-up and hair artist, she has a meticulous attention to detail,excellent communication skills and is an absolute pleasure to work with. She has the ability to put the talent as ease, and gets along very well with the crew  She is extremely reliable, punctual and proactive in approaching the director prior to the shoot, in order to ensure all make-up and hair requirements are met on the day. Her knowledge base and experience is extensive  and she has a clear understanding of the diverse make-up requirements for a variety of filming conditions and styles. Marnie is very creative  and has the ability to research and develop new techniques where required  She often goes above and beyond her role to offer extra assistance onset, without being asked, and always stays to help clean up at the end of the day  which I believe speaks highly of her character as a person.

I would highly recommend Marnie Rappell."-Sarah ScullyFreelance Producer & Director
